Sunday - Martin Handley

Duration:
2 hours
First broadcast:
Sunday 09 December 2012

Martin Handley presents Radio 3's classical breakfast show.

As December progresses, plenty of festive music, requests and surprises.

Throughout December there's the Breakfast Advent Calendar - opening a door every day to reveal winter music and readings chosen by listeners and presenters.

As Christmas gets closer, listeners will have the chance to send a Breakfast Christmas Card by requesting a piece of music and dedicating it to a friend.

And in Your Call where we hear from our audience about their favourite pieces of music, there'll be the chance to introduce a favourite piece of music to the rest of the UK. In the run up to Christmas we'll be hearing about music that reminds listeners of the festive season.
